CONNECTICUT MAGAZINE feature - "40 Under 40: Class of 2013"
Jacquelynn Garofano, 28, Milford
Garofano received a B.S. with honors in physics from Southern Connecticut State University in 2006 and a Ph.D. in materials science and engineering from UConn in 2011; she's now a materials scientist at United Technologies Research Center. While distinguishing herself as a scholar and researcher, she's also been making a difference as a mentor and role model—through outreach with underserved inner-city students and as a volunteer educator at Yale. Acknowledging the "great people who guided me into science," she's passing the torch to the next generation.
